BEE2WASTECRYPTO: The project is intended to develop a new and innovative IT tool that may contribute to empower Regional Waste Management Utilities.

About the Project

Bee2WasteCrypto project aims to develop a differentiating and intuitive IT tool which, based on high resolution data on waste production, allows Regional Waste Management Utilities (RWMUs) to design and manage optimal decentralized solutions for each region, as well as promoting more sustainable waste production and separation behaviors.

The project is based on Data Science, with the objective of determining the best combination of technologies that maximize the recovery of waste, through local strategies, but with a global scope.


  1. Provide RWMUs with the ability to design the best set of technologies to be used in the context of their operation;
  2. Develop an IT system to facilitate Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) systems, together with the use of blockchain technologies to produce reliable information;
  3. A Token, eventually based on a “cryptocurrency”, designed to use Blockchain technologies that pay for sustainable individual behavior when returning waste for recycling or reuse.

Our contribution

NOVA IMS will contribute to this project by developing a model to nudge consumers towards sustainable waste management. This model will inform PAYT (Pay-As-You-Throw) and SAYT (Save-As-You-Throw) systems, incentivizing recycling and reuse. Blockchain technology will ensure data credibility. A "Token" earned for responsible waste disposal will further promote sustainable behavior. This combined approach aims to optimize waste management and create a more environmentally conscious Lisbon.
